Through clouds and shadows
I haven't been myself, not for a while now... That is the realisation I reached through this burnout and consecutive necessary timeoff.
Just say: “YES!” was my motto as reminded me a good friend. Where is that Flo gone?
Don't get me wrong: I brought myself there, on my very own, willingly and aware. I love my job and freely gave my full mind to it. I love my company and dedicated my energy to serve it.
My ambition and passion for challenging and exciting work have been entirely satisfied so far, but at what cost? The positive and enthusiastic social butterfly is gone, or maybe hibernating.
- Do you recall, not long ago, when we used to be free spirited, explore the world around us, and not be so cautious?
I miss that Flo. I used to walk the streets barefoot, dancing around by day and by night; now I safely stay home. I used to seek my friend's time; now I push them away. It is time to be myself again.
